Dear Family and Friends,
It is hard to believe it has been over 5 years since our Andre has gone to heaven. Although we miss him everyday, we continue to feel his love surrounding us.
Andre received the best medical care this world had to offer at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. He endured numerous rounds of chemotherapy, 2 stem cell transplants, and countless procedures. The technology used at St. Jude is cutting edge and Andre was so proud to be part of research destined to change how childhood cancer would be treated. St. Jude has attracted the most talented and committed research scientist, doctors, and nurses.
St. Jude is a place filled with endless hope. They received Andre and our family with open arms. Doctors and nurses treated Andre like he was one of their own.
Andre battled his disease for 28 months and his faith in God only grew stronger. All who prayed for him and supported him echoed his mantra, “Keeping the Faith”. His courageous journey and life on earth ended on June 15, 2012.
We are forever grateful to St. Jude for their tireless efforts to cure our Andre. We are committed to fundraising so that our friends at St. Jude can continue finding cures and saving children. We will always dedicate our efforts in his honor.
Lorie, Jason, Nicholas, Cara, and Team Andre
